I thought my life might become less eventful as I got older. How wrong I was! The past few years have been some of the most life-affirming, frustrating and downright unpredictable of all. Joy and heartbreak, betrayal and recovery, love and laughter. There's so much to tell, and quite a few fireworks along the way.
Sharon Osbourne's life has always been an extreme rollercoaster ride. And despite her best efforts, the last few years have been the most dramatic and turbulent of all. In her gripping new autobiography Sharon reveals the truth behind the headlines. There have been times of huge joy and pleasure - becoming a grandmother for the first time and seeing both Jack and Kelly come through testing times to find happiness and contentment at last.
But there has also been a lot of heartache. Sharon describes the shocking and unexpected battle to save her thirty-year marriage to Ozzy - and the devastating betrayal that lay behind their separation. She also lived through every mother's worst nightmare when Jack was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis - and writes movingly of her hopes and fears for her beloved son.
A tough but fair judge on The X Factor, Sharon is just as hard on herself. She is honest about the mistakes she has made - from misguided plastic surgery to her battles with her weight and body image. Filled with laughter, tears and hard-won wisdom, Unbreakable is as funny, frank and fearless as Sharon herself.
After listening to her first book extreme where Sharon reads her story herself it was a great shame to see that she did not do the audible for this one. Hence only 4 stars! However, Imogen Church managed to give the impression of Sharon very well and soon, for me , the voice could have been Sharon anyway. So well read Imogen!! This book follows on nicely from extreme, although there is another book in between them which I have just noticed,. It explains about the tv show the osbournes, jacks MS diagnosis, the birth of his first daughter Pearl, the terrible turbulent marriage between Sharon and Ozzy at the time, her time on the x factor shows but m o st of all how a broken, tired woman gets up and carries on with her work etc showing how strong Sharon Osbourne can really be.....An inspiration to me and many others no doubt.
Sharon speaks openly and honestly about her life, her surgeries, her granddaughter, marriage to ozzie, her TV shows and Jack's illness. She's a great role model!
I only got this book just because, no reason! Omg I was blown away! I loved it. Off to buy all her other books now. This is one lady that is strong and also admits it's not just Ozzy at fault but also her! And my heart melts at how they are with Pearl, Ozzy actually brought a tear to my eye! LOVED THIS BOOK!
Would you try another book written by Sharon Osbourne or narrated by Imogen Church?
I think one book by SB is fine by me.
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
It was interesting to learn about the inside of the music and entertainment business.
Do you think Unbreakable needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
I guess that depends on how much Sharon Osbourne you crave for.. I enjoyed this book but have no desire to listen further.
